Excursion tip for rose lovers

Steinfurth is a district of Bad Nauheim and is located about 4 km from the city centre. You can reach the Rose Village by car, by bus from Bad Nauheim or on foot.

Visit the oldest Rose Village in Germany

The rose has been a symbol of beauty and love for more than 2,000 years. Since the 19th century, rose growing has been a dominant feature of the townscape of Steinfurth, the oldest rose village in Germany.

From his travels through England, Heinrich Schultheis brought the skill of rose-growing with him in 1868 and thus changed his home village, in whose tradition more than 2 million roses are still produced annually today. The large rose fields turn the abstract number into a vivid picture. The most diverse colours and shapes are found close together.


For centuries the beauty has fascinated by the harmonious shape of its flowers and colours. The decisive perception happens with the nose! As soon as the sense of smell penetrates into the depths of the rose, feelings or memories are triggered. For thousands of years, a fragrant bouquet of roses has rightly been regarded as an expressive symbol of a declaration of love. However, the queen of flowers is not only beautiful, she also has a positive effect on well-being: Invigorating in case of exhaustion and calming in case of stress.


For anyone who has visited Steinfurth, the rose is no longer just a flower like many others. It is a work of art, a cultural asset, an experience of nature, a symbol of beauty - in short: a world of its own!

Visit the rose show gardens

A "Rosenchaussee", which blooms magnificently in summer, will guide you stylishly to the Steinfurth district. Even more than 150 years after the foundation of the first rose farm, large farms still exist in Steinfurth. In summer, when everything is in full bloom and a wonderful scent of roses is in the air, a visit to the Steinfurth show gardens is particularly worthwhile.
